Interview with Whit Crane and Klaus Eichstadt of Ugly Kid Joe

Did you know that cult surf-rockers Ugly Kid Joe possibly played an improbable role in the Northern Ireland peace process?  Well, they did – and you can find out how when PM’s Ireland editor caught up with frontman Whit Crane and guitarist Klaus Eichstadt during their stopover in Belfast (just a few short hours before this interview was posted):  however, the singer seems more taken by our man’s beautiful female companion, and he kicks off this entirely unedited conversation – recorded in the dressing room in the wee small hours – by talking about her favourite UKJ track…

‘Stairway To Hell’ is available now.
